The third group of books from dad and Ann arrived the other day.
This book has beautiful color illustrations.
Some old text books.
A book on Asia filled with photographs.Hawthorne's Twice Told Tales.
The cover of this book is very ornate.
Another ornate cover.
A mythical creature graces the binding of this volumne.
This box of books had a little extra surprise.
A beautiful silver teapot.
The details are stunning.

I think it's time for a pot of tea and some reading.

Care to join me?

Thanks Ann for the beautiful teapot:)!

Do you think your dad would adopt me?! :o)

What beautiful books and the illustrations are just amazing. I've enjoyed all the posts about these old books and I'm thinking of looking through some of our oldies to enjoy them again.

And that teapot! What a wonderful surprise. Have you decided where you're going to display it?

The teapot is gorgeous, incredible etchings! I can't wait to see where you put all of those books. Perhaps it's time to add on a room:)
